I am going to take a guest on this, and likely stick my foot in my mouth.

- Beat doppler by always having a satellite roughly at the same place in the sky at "all times"; thus the need for #0,000's of satellites.  With the spacing as small as they are, doppler would not change enough to make too much of a difference.
- They are tracking the available signals with multiple SDR slices and picking the best one

This might provide better information than my guesses:  http://kassas.eng.uci.edu/papers/Kassas_Acquisition_Doppler_tracking_and_positioning_with_Starlink_LEO_satellites_first_results.pdf

I know the StarLink birds are in LEO.  That means there is lots of
Doppler shift involved.  How do the StarLink terminals keep locked on to
the signals on the downlink and compensate for the Doppler.
